Harold Monteau: Republicans aim to deconstruct the federal government

So what are President Donald Trump and the Republican Party really up to? Harold Monteau, a citizen of the Chippewa Cree Tribe, has some thoughts:
Just in case you haven’t got the message as to the Trump/GOP agenda, perhaps you are not listening. The Trump/GOP agenda has been articulated by the President of the United States (Donald Trump was selected POTUS by the Electoral College—that’s reality.), his financiers and advisers, his appointees and staff (voluntary and paid), the leaders of the Republican Party (GOP) and the 39 Republican controlled state governments. Their agenda is deconstruction of the federal government. They can’t have articulated this more clearly. What does deconstruction mean? What is the end game?

The end game is an authoritative government maintained by wealthy corporate oligarchs. This will be achieved by a permanent conservative pro-corporate majority Congress and a permanent conservative pro-corporate American Supreme Court, coupled with a weakened administrative bureaucracy, except for an authoritative presidency that is permanently beholden to corporate America and a corporate world structure. This permanent one-party domination will be complemented and maintained by permanent conservative majority of state legislatures and governors. In other words, a permanent conservative (GOP) takeover and a permanent one-party (GOP) dominated political system owned by corporate America oligarchs.

America will be run as a business asset, which has been the dream of wealthy oligarchs since the republic was put together by wealthy landowners and slave owners who wrote the U.S. Constitution. America (white male America, at least) was built on a principle of exploiting the natural wealth of the Americas—in other words, an asset to be monetized and exploited by business interests.
